Mariners fans can bypass weekend traffic and take Sound Transit’s popular game day Sounder train to the 1:10 p.m. game against the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday.

The stadium-bound train from the south will depart Lakewood at 10:45 a.m., South Tacoma at 10:50 a.m., Tacoma at 10:59 a.m., Puyallup at 11:11 a.m., Sumner at 11:16 a.m., Auburn at 11:25 a.m., Kent at 11:32 a.m., Tukwila at 11:39 a.m. and arrive in Seattle at 11:58 a.m. Return trains depart King Street Station 35 minutes after the game.

A complete schedule of Sounder service to select Mariners games this season is available at soundtransit.org/mariners.

Special Sounder service is in addition to regular Link light rail service to and from Safeco Field. Link runs every 10 minutes on Sunday and serves 15 stations at the University of Washington, on Capitol Hill, in downtown Seattle, SODO, Beacon Hill, Rainier Valley, Tukwila and SeaTac. Link’s Stadium and International District stations are a short walk from Safeco Field.

Many ST Express and King County Metro buses also drop off passengers near the stadium. Link and ST Express bus schedules are available at soundtransit.org/schedule. King County Metro bus schedules can be found at metro.kingcounty.gov/schedules/.

Regular fares apply for all Sound Transit services. Rail riders can avoid the lines for the ticket vending machines going home by paying for the return trip with the purchase of a Day Pass. One-way tickets and Day Passes can also be purchased with the Transit GO Ticket app. Another way to skip lines at ticket vending machines is by getting an ORCA card. Cards only cost $5 for adults, plus whatever amount a rider chooses to load in the card’s E-purse or the cost of a pass that is good for unlimited transit trips. ORCA works on trains, buses and ferries throughout the region. More information is available at orcacard.com.
